Each newer version of iTunes results in poorer sound quality

Customer Question

Each newer version of iTunes results in poorer sound quality when played back directly from my main system. Tracks that use to sound fine now sound garbled. Same tracks play fine on my iPod 16GB nano. Changing advanced sound settings to not help. Any ideas on how to fix?

If you are experiencing audio quality issues after updating to iTunes 9, please try this:



1. Open iTunes Preferences > Playback.
2. Disable Crossfade songs, Sound Enhancer and Sound Check.
3. Click OK.
4. Open the Equalizer (, in the View menu on Windows).
5. Disable the EQ by de-selecting the checkbox in the upper left.
6. Play an affected track.
